Miami, Florida

Spectacular view of Miami's Skyline, with the network of expressways and freeways in the foreground of the pture.  Miami, once an Indian Trading Post on Biscayne Bay at the mouth of the Miami River with a population of around 400, was incorporated inta a village in 1896.  In less than a century it has expanded rapidly and greater Miami now has a population of 1 1/2 million, and is known as the gateway to the Americas.

Among the hundreds of beautiful birds roaming free at Miami's Rare Bird Farm are Flamingos that will eat from your hand - Ostriches 10 feet tall, Parrots that pose on your shoulder etc.  Ten miles south on U.S. No. 1.
